I’m a multicultural creative manager and co-founder of digital agency Swurl. I am fluent in English and Russian. My passion is studying the relationship between people and technology, and how our society is influenced by it. I have worked in various creative roles for 13 years and my favorite part is working with people and leading the design of human-centered products.
I specialize in developing the story of how company brands are being perceived, evaluating the user experience, and collaborating with engineers and creatives to find elegant solutions.
I have an undergraduate degree from the Rhode Island School of Design…but with that being said, a lot of the best artists I know never went to school. I’m currently working on a book called, “Should I go to art school?”. Should be out 2021!
Working in UX requires you to not only LOVE people, but to be endlessly curious about why they do the things they do.

I thrive in environments where I can mentor individuals and learn how people choose to interact with technology. I enjoy motivating designers to be at their best, but I also love diving into the details. I believe it is important to reflect and redesign our circumstances and surroundings. I’m looking for organizations that are forward thinking and embrace change as a positive element.
I’m not an expert, I’m still learning. I love finding artists that stand out, I love discovering their passion, helping them build confidence and collaborating with them on innovative projects. My goal is to bring talented people together and make things happen.
